Unfortunately for Tim Tebow, he continues to receive a lump of coal.
Jets head coach Rex Ryan announced Thursday that Mark Sanchez, not Tebow, will start Sunday’s regular season finale against the Bills.
Last week’s starter, Greg McElroy, has been diagnosed with a concussion after experiencing headaches while lifting weights. McElroy, who was sacked 11 times in Week 16, admitted to hiding the symptoms, forcing a “stunned” Ryan to hand the reigns back to Sanchez.
This marks the second time Tebow has been passed over for the start.
“Obviously Tim’s not happy with that,” Ryan said.
Nor should he be.
Ryan claims he’s going with Sanchez because he’s more familiar with the Bills, but one can easily see through that facade. Tebow has never been in the conversation at QB, and the rampant speculation that Ryan doesn’t trust him under center isn’t just speculation any longer — it’s fact.
Fortunately for Tebow, he only has to endure a few more days of the circus that is Gang Green.
